About this objectThe humidity of the atmosphere may be determined by measuring the imbalance caused by the absorption of moisture by the cotton, which, when dry is equal to the weight on the other side of the scale. Leonardo spent much time studying the atmosphere, both as an artist and as a scientist, recording in drawings many of the effects that he saw.
